today, he would march and stand up for education. he would march and stand up for children to make sure that they have their needs met. i think it's important that president obama approach this as he has, reaching out to the republicans but standing his ground on those principles that will make this country a good country in the 21st century. >> but, donna weather the republicans extending this olive branch, if you will, to extend the debt ceiling vote three months, is that a good sign? >> i don't like to see anything with -- what do we call that with-in the grocery store when they want to attach something to it? >> two for one sale? >> it might be a two for one sale. republicans want to increase their advantage being at the table with the sequester coming up weather the regular budget that's coming up. look, i understand the games the republicans are playing but the game the american people want them to play is to play fair, to make sure that the rich pay their fair share but also the deep cuts do not disproportionately hurt those people still trying to stand up after the worst economi
